a small particle of mass m atached with a light inextensible spring L is moving in a vertical circle .minimum velocity required for the particle to go around complete vertical circle at highest ponit is √ the given case the particle is moving in complete vertical circle & ratio of it's maximum to minimum velocity is 2:1
What is the minimum velocity

ans (B) 2√gl/3

Answers : (1)



In this problem, the given velocity(√gl ) is the minimum velocity required for the particle at its highest point to complete vertical circle.

Let, u & v be the velocity of the particle at its lowest and highest point respectively.

u : v = 2:1 => u = 2v.----------->(1)

according to work-energy theorem,

mg(2l) = (1/2)mu2 - (1/2)mv2 --------------->(2)

from eqns (1)& (2), we get v = (2/3)(√gl).


This is the minimum velocity of the particle in its complete circular motion in this present case.

In a horizontal circular motion is mg taken into consideration?
Well , in horizontal motion most of the times force mg is balanced by normal reaction. This normal reaction is mostly perpendicular to centripetal force so it doesnt play any role. But if...

Yes it is taken into consideration. All the forces acting on the body are taken into consideration when solving any type of problem unless stated otherwise.

So do you mean that mg is always taken into consideration? Both in vertical and horizontal circular motions???
